Grant Proposal[edit]

M. Please state the title of your proposal. This will also be the Meta-Wiki page title.

Conference talk "Citation geneaology and Linked Open Data approaches to support better quality in bibliographic metadata" at the International Conference of Art Libraries, Munich

Q. Indicate if it is a local, international, or regional proposal and if it involves several countries? (optional)


Q2. If you have answered regional or international, please write the country names and any other information that is useful for understanding your proposal.

travel from Oxford, United Kingdom to Munich, Germany to give a conference talk at 9th International Conference of Art Libraries Munich, Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, 14.–15.10.2022

R. If you would like, please share any websites or social media accounts that your group or organization has.

1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

the conference talk will present my research from the Wikimedia Germany Open Science Fellows program to a crucially relevant professional audience of leading art librarians. My project focuses on tracing the citation and re-citation of contestable information in knowledge structures and uses Linked Open Data an Wikidata to provide an accessible method to trace, visualize, and analyze citation genealogy structures through bibliographic metadata. The attendees of the conference make lead decisions in institutional metadata structures, data quality control, and accessibility including use of Linked Open Data. As I am currently a graduate student at Oxford University I need to fund travel and accommodation cost to go from Oxford to Munich.

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.

rework research project data for intended art librarians and library metadata specialists, present central case study of clear instance of contastable information being replicated for over 170 years and how that contestable information has entered and been recited in the research literature and now leading culutral institutions databases (including Wikimedia sources in different languages), provide approaches of how Linked Open Data can help to correct data and provide more sustainable knowledge structures enriched by and benefital to both institutions and citizen science participants.

3. What are the activities you will be developing and delivering as part of these approaches or strategies?

Talk presentation and promotion of Wikidata and cultural heritage data quality control as well as engagement and networking with other conference attending from international leading art libraries.

4. Are your activities part of a Wikimedia movement campaign or event? If so, please select the relevant campaign below. If so, please select all the relevant campaigns from the list below. If "other", please state which.
